Six-time Oscar-nominee 'Parasite' ready for rent

Posted: Updated:


"Parasite" has six Oscar nominations, and it was third on was third on my list of the best movies of 2019. It's the story of a family of con artists glomming onto a wealthier family by posing as tutors for their kids, house cleaners and drivers to try and take advantage of the high life. But it means these cons have to keep their stories and secret identities straight. 

The movie doesn't provide easy good guys and bad guys; it's far more nuanced than that. Director Bong Joon-ho's film is a wickedly funny satire of class struggle, and it has some shocking twists and turns you won't see coming played out by an outstanding cast.  

RATING: * * * * 1/2


* * * * * Incredible - One of the best of the year
* * * * Excellent - Touches greatness with only minor quibbles
* * * Good - Plenty to like, definitely worth seeing
* * Mediocre - You can do better
* Awful - The worst, an insult to movies
